I was looking around on the Strobist website and a shot that he did of some vodka bottles. And yes, I’m purposely not posting a link to his particular shot because his turned out much much better than mine. But hey, he was paid for his shot. I was not.
I actually had two flashes in play here. One spraying light onto the background (our living room curtain), the other directly overhead the glass here. As fate would have it, a misfire of the overhead flash left me with a result I enjoyed more than when the flash fired as it should.
